Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting - Genealogical Talk and Hanukah Party

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday December 12

7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM

Join GHJGS this December for the ultimate Jewish holiday celebration: We will reminisce how, once again, someone tried to destroy our ancestors, over plates of wonderful food based on recipes that have been passed on from one generation to another…

Our evening will start with a presentation from Charlie Burns, GHJGS member, who has been documenting the beautiful artwork of Jewish tombstone (MATZEVAH – מצבה ) in Eastern Europe. Charlie has been traveling to different countries in Eastern Europe to document the tombstones in Jewish cemeteries for many years and will share photos and stories from his numerous trips.

Following the presentation, we will celebrate Hanukah with a dessert potluck where each one of us is invited to bring a favorite dish and share both the food and the recipe with the group. What better way is there to preserve our heritage and ensure that traditions are kept alive?

PLEASE BRING A FAVORITE DESSERT AND PRINT COPIES OF YOUR RECIPE TO SHARE WITH FELLOW MEMBERS. GHJGS WILL PROVIDE COFFEE. Do you have a special story about your recipe? We would love hear it – Please share it with us! Please email  to let us know what you will be bringing so we can be sure to have enough treats on hand.
